Weird Trick Stops Colitis & IBS
Digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome and colitis have skyrocketed in recent years.
But if your doctor is just treating the immediate effects, like chronic diarrhea, constipation, gas, and bloating, he’s missing the big picture.
Because these types of illnesses are often triggered by underlying condition called “leaky gut syndrome.”
The contents of your gut are basically “leaking” across your digestive barrier and into your bloodstream, causing massive inflammation.
The good news is that if you can stop leaky gut syndrome, you can fix a lot of your digestive problems for good.
And scientists may have just found a simple way to do that.
Having a good barrier function in your gut is essential for overall health and wellbeing.
You want to keep things like toxins and undigested food OUT of your bloodstream – while keeping important nutrients IN your digestive system.
And this process is controlled by a receptor in the gut called AHR (Aryl hydrocarbon receptor).
Enter cruciferous vegetables like broccoli.
This veggie family contains a compound (called indole glucosinolates) that breaks down into smaller substances (called indolocarbazole, or ICZ) that activate this AHR gateway receptor.
Studies show that when ICZ from cruciferous vegetables activates this AHR gateway receptor, it helps to enhance the gut’s important barrier function.
That means less leaky gut, less inflammation, and better gut health for you.
In a study on mice, the ICZ from cruciferous vegetables led to less inflammation and a stronger gut barrier.
That’s a lot of benefits from something as simple as a head of broccoli.
The problem is that based on the amounts used in this study, you’d have to eat three CUPS of broccoli per day to obtain these benefits.
Fortunately, broccoli isn’t the only cruciferous vegetable to choose from. Others include cauliflower, kale, collard greens, cabbage, Brussel’s sprouts, bok choy, and arugula.
With that many tasty options, getting enough servings a day shouldn’t be too difficult. And it’s one of the most important things you can do for your gut.
To a brighter day,
